    Jackson and his infallible friend both owe their salary to Naomi Klein this week. Of the three, she is the least likely to blow the wad on porn.

    Rule of thumb; if you're criticized by a has-been like Limbaugh or a never-was like Palin, then you must be doing something right.

    It's a nice change to have a pope who isn't working hand-in-hand with the CIA while holding inquisitions into nuns and priests who put the courage of their convictions into practice by helping people.

    Peter- '' OUR" pontiff ? Pontiff has a new PR Team in place and they have been successful in changing the agenda. What sex scandals? Corruption and coverup in Vatican? Vatican Bank reform? The very first announce by the Vatican on Nov 11 regarding the devastation left by typhoon Haiyan in the Phillippines was a DONATION BY THE POPE OF $150,00.to be transferred not to the international red cross or other charity but to local catholic churches for their distribution. The donation, the vatican communique concluded, is meant to be the “first and immediate concrete expression of the sentiments of spiritual closeness and paternal encouragement of the Supreme Pontiff towards the people and territories devastated by the floorings.” WHOW! How low can Peter's Pense go ! !It just another Papal Bull!

    I find it amusing that the so-called "religious right" are so offended by a religious leader actually stating the obvious and throwing their own teachings (which they have twisted to their own benefit) back in their faces. Looks good on them. Maybe Limbaugh, Palin, Santorum and the rest of them can learn something from the Pope.

    The root cause of economic disparity lies in the fact that our economic system is a for- profit business. People who can afford to pay for goods and services have access to them and people who can't afford to pay for the aforementioned goods and services do without them. The only exception being goods or services paid for by Governments, as part of the so-called social safety net, which includes: Social Assistance, Family Allowance, and OAS). The oil-fueled economic prosperity being experienced in this Province in recent times; has resulted in those who have already have money, obtaning more money, while those of us who have always struggled financially, are faced with the task of finding the money to cover increases in the cost of basic necessities of life such as food, clothing, and adequate housing.

    The Pontiff needs to lay-off the weed and stay away from the far-left nonsense that he is obviously reading.

      Ed, I am not a very Religious person. I criticize the value of organized churches and their leadership. Your application of the modern-day euphemisms regarding left vs right just reinforces the ignorant polarizations of simple ideologies. Either/Or. Black and White. One side (if you identify with it) is deified, while the other is demonized. But as I said I am not a theologian. But I can identify that Christianity is based on many values that simply threaten corporate culture. Did Jesus (in the stories) condemn the temple and the golden calf and such? Is it not stories of the Good Samaritan taught in Sunday Schools? Believe me when I say I think the Pope is full of crap and a culture inflated focus of misinformation and greed. BUT this time there are words that actually seem to be logical, sound, and based in the moral direction that I was, as a child, sold as the Christian idea - later to be alienated by the truths of corruption and fallacy. The Pope and other leaders (not just the Dali Lama) need to start preaching the realities of humanity, and not perpetuation the greed and corruption. Finally a step towards something that I believe is what Christianity had sold out from for centuries.

      Ed, your the first to bring up weed. Is this a constant fixation for you?
